Three premieres showcasing the Company’s technical prowess and range of moods and styles. ASFB’s newest commissioned work is Eudaemonia by Cherice Barton, choreographer for Broadway’s Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark and America’s Got Talent. Eudaemonia explores, through a series of vignettes, one’s search for happiness by examining issues such as self-love, self-worth, forgiveness, perfectionism, and motherhood. Alejandro Cerrudo’s Silent Ghost set to ambient music by Dustin Hamman, King Creosote & Jon Hopkins, Ólafur Arnalds, and Nils Frahm, reflects on tenderness, memories and loss. The program closes with the flamboyant and humorous Huma Rojo (meaning “red smoke”) by Barcelona-born choreographer Cayetano Soto. Named for the central character in the Spanish film, All About My Mother, and set to a medley of Latin retro beat songs, it features the company in flaming red pants and shirts designed by Kim Laursen. The movement, with undercurrents of classical technique, is playful and based in part on Latin American social dances while reflecting Soto’s sublime wit.
